David Vest Album Release Party
Sat. September 18th 7:00pm - 9:00pm doors at 5:30pm (All Ages)
Legendary blues piano player David Vest and his band will be celebrating the release of their new album, recorded live right here at Hermann's Jazz Club. David has sold out Hermann's over fifty times, and anyone who hears this new recording will know why. The music ranges from classic boogie-woogie to gospel-inflected jazz, authentic blues and high-energy rock and roll. The album won't be officially released to the general public until Oct. 1, so come on down and be among the first to hear it even before it hits the charts.
Expect to hear most of the songs from the new album plus a few of David's greatest hits. And since the album spotlights David's amazing band, you'll enjoy watching Damian Graham, Tom Bowler, and Ryan Tandy stretch out on drums, guitar, and bass.
“A huge blues and boogie talent.” — Holger Petersen, Saturday Night Blues on CBC
“He falls into the same class as the masters: Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, James P. Johnson, Fats Waller. Long live the Boogie Piano King!” — Cascade Blues Association
“Vest’s bio reads like the history of rock ’n roll and blues … he’s among a select group that includes Ronnie Hawkins and Jerry Lee Lewis.” — John Valenteyn
